I am part of a spinning group that almost never meets. In between meetings my spinning wheel has the tendency to gather dust. Spinning is a very relaxing, meditative activity. It is something you can do while catching up with friends. I was really happy that we were able to meet before the holiday nuttiness began. It had been a while since I worked on my wheel and I ran into a few snags while plying my yarn, but ultimately I was able to finish spinning and plying the merino/tencel yarn that had been on my wheel for almost a year. It’s a 2-ply yarn that will make a lovely shawl or something else lacy. I spun it in a fingering weight yarn.
Here’s wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving. Don’t forget to take time to relax with family and friends and enjoy each other’s company.
